We were fortunate to have Geir Strandenes in Zermatt for The Big Sick conference, TBS18. Dr. Strandenes is medical head of Norwegian Naval Spec Ops forces and one of the founders of the THOR network and heavily into hemorrhagic shock resuscitation and whole blood.
Geir is a true eccentric. New and creative ways of thinking, but always founded in research, history and physiology. True to his style, he delivered his talk in his “Make Whole Blood Great Again” and barefoot in hotel slippers.
His talk ventures into frontiers not reached by RCTs, so he explores fascinating historical research and goes into physiology and animal experiments to make a great case for attacking hemorrhagic shock and bleeding in a different way. You’ll get some eye-openers during this talk, and lots of stuff to think through and discuss. Enjoy.
